One for festival geeks.

Burning Man is without doubt the most unique festival in the world, and Glastonbury is the largest. Crew alone is 30k, with another 10k of performers, and 140k of ticket buyers.

In this frank and extensive interview, Michael Eavis talks about Glastonbury past and present. The 45 minutes includes chat about everything from starting up, to the "Battle of Yeomans Bridge" (a riot), the days of the travellers, to where the festival is at now including the $1.5m yearly rental steel superfence, his views on photos on tickets, and the idea of using RFID tagged wristbands.

After a brief intro in German, the talk is all in English.
